Hi! Today i got my very first microphone which is a Sennheiser MD421. I had already read some reviews about the crappy clamp on it. So... I tried to attach my MD421 to my Jamstand mic stand and noticed it didn't fit. The md421 user manual mentions it comes with a 5/8"-> 3/8" adapter which looks like the one in the photo and that according to the manual it can be removed. I have tried everything and I just can't take it out. Any suggestions? Heeeeelp

i think you can use some flat head screwdriver or something for it. i always end up using a dime or a penny and fitting it into the notches on the adapter and using a set of pliers to hold the coin and spin the adapter free.

I just used a 3/8" screw on mine. TBH, it's not my first choice for a guitar mic, at least on its own. Great in conjunction with an SM57 or e609 though.

i like them as overheads for drums.

I stick a guitar string and loop it under the clip to keep it from slipping out.

It's great for guitar, but you have the set the HPF where it sounds good.
